The Funny Finish Line: Where Horse Racing and Laughter Meet Daily (03/27/23)

Welcome to “The Funny Finish Line,” where horse racing and laughter meet daily as we gallop through some amazing horse racing history, top jockeys, hilarious jokes, and of course, the Raymond Report Premium Tipsheet's picks of the day! Giddy up, and let's get started!

First up, let's dive into some history. Did you know that the Kentucky Derby, a prestigious race dating back to 1875, is the oldest continuously held horse race in the United States? And it's not just about the horses; it's also about the fashionable hats! Some say the horses are just an excuse for people to show off their fancy headwear.

Are You Kidding Me?

Speaking of fashion, let's talk about jockeys. The legendary Bill Shoemaker won an astonishing 8,833 races during his career, but did you know he once rode a race backward as a prank? We're not horsing around – he actually turned around in the saddle and still managed to win the race! Talk about a real-life “Joker” in the race.

Now, let's saddle up and check out today's picks from the Raymond Report Tipsheet, but first, a joke to lighten the mood:

Why did the horse become an artist? Because he had a natural talent for drawing “horse-shoe” strokes!

Today's Horse Racing Picks

Alright, now let's get serious and check out today's horse racing picks:

RACE #1: Will Rogers Downs – Our top pick is (4) Billhill. This horse is known to have a great sense of humor, often neighing jokes to his stablemates. Keep an eye on the Joker, (2) Del Moon, who's rumored to moonwalk in the winner's circle.

RACE #6: Turf Paradise – Keep an eye on (5) Jake the Great. Not only is he a strong contender, but he's also considering a career in stand-up comedy. Rumor has it, he can't resist a good “hay” joke.

RACE #2: Santa Anita – Our favorite here is (5) Rosy Edge, a horse known for tickling the funny bone of her competitors with her pink mane. And watch out for the Joker, (4) Danehill Song, who loves to sing tunes from famous musicals during the race.

RACE #3: Parx Racing – (4) Brooklyn Heights is our top pick, but don't be surprised if she stops mid-race to grab a slice of pizza. And be sure to watch the Joker, (1) In My Opinion, who's known to give unsolicited advice on betting strategies to other horses in the race.

RACE #7: Mahoning Valley – (1) Maliced is our choice for the win. This horse has a mischievous side, and rumor has it he's been practicing a victory dance. The Joker, (6) Makescentstous, has a nose for success and a knack for sniffing out the best jokes around.

As we wrap up, here's a final joke to send you off with a smile:

Why did the horse sit in the corner? Because he wanted to be a “stable” genius!
